On a bright sun warm sun shiny day, we went to Bukit Layang-layang, Pasir Gudang, Johor Bahru, Malaysia to witness the International Kite Festival 2008 which is held from 19-24 February 2008. It is the last day and the park was still flooded with people and vehicles parking alongside it. Various activities were organized to attract local and international visitors. This is the second time I brought my family to the kite festival.

I told you there are a lot of kites there…

I don’t know whether a similar international kite festival is held in other places or not? But, it is definitely an annual event in Johor Bahru. If you miss this, you can come here again next year. It’s really fantastic but it’s hot (warm).

Share and Enjoy

    Festival tahun nie akan mendukacitakan. Festival paling happening adalah pada tahun 2006.

    Aku pegi masa perasmian (23/2) oleh Sultan Johor. Banyak layang-layang yang tak naik dek kerana kurang angin.

    Kalau ko pegi hari sabtu, jumpa ramai blogger dr selatan nie seperti azhar dan lan rasso eheh.

  13. am says:

    insyaallah ada rezeki sampaila am kat sana… ada kawan am punya abang meniaga kat sini tiap2 tahun… untung dia, dia cite dalam 15k boleh capai punya…

  14. zaki says:

    @ Aizat,

    Wah…lama tak dengar cerita? sunyi sepi je… Apesal? Where have you been?

    @ Megat,

    Yep. This year’s festival was not as exciting as the previous one. No wind? or perhaps not enough wind power.

    Tak dapek nak pegi hari sabtu la… ada aqiqah anak adik aku.

    @ Am,

    Orait, kalau sampai…boleh kasi tau…
    Lebat gak income dia meniaga situ !!!

    Those kites are gorgeous. Here in the midwestern part of the United States, I wouldn’t even know where to find kites like that. The stores here only sell cheap plastic kites.

  16. zaki says:

    @ Piper,

    Yea…sure they’re gorgeous. Pity, there’re not enough wind power to fly the kites. If you could not find those cute interesting kite in US, maybe you can consider coming to Malaysia 🙂
